Bronzi’s back! That’s right — the sixtysomething Hungarian action star born Robert Kovacs who was performing in a European Wild West stage show when director Rene Perez saw his photo on the wall of a bar and thought it was an undiscovered Bronson movie. Since then, he’s been in From Hell to the Wild West, Death Kiss, Cry Havoc, Once Upon a Time in Deadwood and now this movie.
After the death of his brother, Mick Kovacs (Bronzi) heads to America to get justice and get sent directly to the Pleasant Hill Penitentiary where he learns that his brother’s death was no accident. So he does what he does best: he kills everybody.
Much like The Shawshank Redemption, this movie was filmed in Ohio’s Mansfield Reformatory. Unlike The Shawshank Redemption, this movie is filled with CGI bullet wounds and a thin plot, but come on. You know what you want, this movie has it and you’re going to probably love it as much as I did. This is the kind of movie perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon or late night drinking session.
Gary Jones also directed Mosquito and Boogeyman 3, as well as working on the visual effects for 68 movies in the last decade of so.
As for Bronzi, his next movies include Mat Rats, a wrestling movie in which he plays The Dago and two Scott Jeffrey-directed movies, Exorcist Vengeance (yes, Bronson and exorcism combined, as they always should have been) and The Gardener.
